is a subject that has attracted much discussion for several centuries.
Some have accused Masonry of fantastic crimes and misdeeds. Instead of
trying to understand "the Brotherhood," and criticizing it objectively,
critics have been unduly hostile to the organization. For their part,
Masons have deepened their traditional reticence in the face of these
accusations, preferring to present themselves as an ordinary social club-which
they are not.
This book contains a correct exposition of Masonry as a school of thought.
The most important unifying influence among Masons is their philosophy-which
can be best described according to such terms as "materialism" and "secular
humanism." But, it is an errant philosophy based on false suppositions
and flawed theories. This is the basic starting-point from which Masonry
must be criticized.
It is necessary to point out from the start that such criticism is important,
not only to inform non-Masons on the subject, but also to invite Masons
themselves to see the truth. Of course, Masons, like everyone else, are
free to choose for themselves, and can adopt whatever worldview they wish
and to live in accordance with it. This is their natural right. But, others
also have a right to expose their errors and to criticize them, and this
is what this present book attempts to do.
We follow the same approach in our criticisms of other communities as
well. Like the Jews for example. This book, in part, also deals with the
history of Judaism and offers certain important criticisms. It must be
pointed out that these have nothing to do with anti-Semitism or "Judeo-Masonic"
conspiracy theories. Indeed, anti-Semitism is alien to a true Muslim.
Jews are a people that at one time had been chosen by God and to whom
He sent many prophets. Throughout history they suffered much cruelty,
even being subjected to genocide, but they never abandoned their identity.
In the Qur'an, God calls them, together with Christians, the People of
the Book, and enjoins Muslims to treat them kindly and justly. But, a
necessary part of this justice is to criticize the errant beliefs and
practices of some of them, to show them the path to true righteousness.
But of course, their right to live according to what they believe in and
desire is beyond question.
Global Freemasonry sets out from this premise, and investigates
critically Masonry's roots, as well as its aims and activities. In this
book, the reader will also find a summary of the history of the Masons'
struggle against theistic religions. Freemasons have played an important
role in Europe's alienation from religion, and in its place, founding
of a new order based on the philosophies of materialism and secular humanism.
We will also see how Masonry has been influential in the imposition of
these dogmas to non-Western civilizations. Finally, we will discuss the
methods Masonry has used to help establish and perpetuate a social order
based on these dogmas. Their philosophy and the methods they use to establish
this philosophy will be exposed and criticized.
It is hoped that the important facts related in this book will be a means
whereby many, including Masons, will be able to look at the world with
After reading this book, the reader will be able to consider many subjects,
from schools of philosophy to newspaper headlines, rock songs to political
ideologies, with a deeper understanding, and better discern the meaning
and aims behind events and factors.
